The Lafayette Studio and Princely India
The Lafayette Studio and Princely India
Description
About the Book:

The Lafayette Studio boasts one of the oldest histories of any photographic business in the world. During its peak years, the studio photographed a succession of King Emperors/Queen Empresses, Viceroys, and Vicereines-including Viscounts Mountbatten and Chelmsford, and other leading colonial administrators and business achievers.

The studio was founded in Dublin in 1880 by James Stack Lauder, who used the professional name of James Lafayette ('late of Paris', as his own firm's publicity billed him). James was the eldest son of Edmund Lauder, a pioneering and successful photographer who had opened a daguerreotype studio in Dublin in 1853. The new business flourished, soon establishing itself as the premier portrait studio in Ireland, following commissions from the Viceroy and leading members of the Irish aristocracy.

During the 1880s the studio started amassing medals and prizes for its fine photographic work with comments such as this forthcoming from the Photographic Society of Great Britain: 'M[onsieur] Lafayette's pictures also the judges considered very beautiful, being distinguished for delicacy of treatment.'

The firm's reputation was such that in 1887 James Lafayette was invited to Windsor to photograph Queen Victoria and was granted a royal warrant as 'Her Majesty's Photographer in Dublin'. This royal warrant, which was subsequently renewed by King Edward VII and George V. conferred a great deal of prestige on him. The style and title of 'Photographer Royal', which now appeared on the studio's advertising and promotional literature, proved extremely useful in attracting new clients.

Testimonials

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.

The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
